A program co-sponsored by SLA-Cincinnati and SWON Libraries

In February, the Association of College and Research Libraries adopted the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education.   The Framework consists of six threshold concepts and represents a major shift in thinking and learning about information literacy in the digital age.  This document builds on ideas presented in the American Association of School Librarian’s Standards for the 21st Century Learner,  and it remains to be seen how the Framework may influence research-related competencies outside of higher education.  Join your regional colleagues to learn more about the Framework and discuss implications for our profession.  Craig Gibson, co-chair of the ACRL task force charged with creating the Framework, will be the featured speaker.  A panel of librarians from various settings will also be on hand to share insights and ideas.
